Sail vs. Power
In a motorboat you are always in a hurry trying to get somewhere. But while sailing you are "already there". In a motorboat its about getting there as soon as you fast as "bone-jarringly" possible, in a sailboat the journey is as enjoyable as the destination
I have done both, (as a bet most on this have list), but there is something about arriving just by the wind in your sails that makes sailing just an incredibly special experience. Most can''t say that (in general) about motorboating....Try finding someone who is really into sailing/cruising and ask to tag along for the weekend with no time frame....just go and sail, anchor, explore. I bet you will have made your decision one way or another, by the weeks end.
